hi killy,

could be due to the fact that smtp traffic coming out from china is filtered heavily at the chinese border routers. even myself tunnel smtp through http ports to get pass all those filtering the chinese government have in place. you might wanna take a look at this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_censorship_in_China,

out of China in the past.


Can anyone shed a little light into what they are trying to accomplish?



We went from a high average of 400 attempts to 700 in recent days.


TIA
